Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to visit my Fundraising Page.
My name is Jennifer Roberts-Cook and I currently reside in Southend, SK. I am a Cree Woman and a Member of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band.
I recently accepted the challenge to join Team Diabetes at the Wicklow Mountain Hike in Dublin, Ireland. I am doing this for two reasons: 1. To challenge myself physically and 2. To raise funds for a cause that I believe in. I lost my father, Amos Roberts in 2004, due to complications from diabetes. I will hike in memory of my father. <3
Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions in Canada, especially within the First Nations population. Currently, 11 million Canadians are living with diabetes or prediabetes, a number that is expected to rise to more than 13 million by 2025 if we fail to take action.
Team Diabetes is the national physical activity fundraising program for the Canadian Diabetes Association. Team members promote a healthy lifestyle while raising vital funds in support of the more than 10 million Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes. The funds raised help the Association deliver on its mission to lead the fight against diabetes by helping people with diabetes live healthy lives while we work to find a cure. We invite you to learn more about Team Diabetes and the important work of the Canadian Diabetes Association at www.teamdiabetes.ca.
You can help me with this cause by helping me reach my goal of $7,500. My first installment of $2,500. is due by February 2018.
Thank you for your anticipated support,
